Legendary Hollywood director JOHN STURGES breathed new life into the Western and brought it to another level of greatness, with such landmark movies as The Magnificent Seven and Gunfight at the OK Coral.
Backlash is a highly original, unconventional Western, brimming with tense, violent action and a plot riddled with mystery and suspense. Featuring RICHARD WIDMARK, the menacing and unforgettable star of film noir masterpieces Kiss of Death and Panic in the Streets, and co-stars accomplished actress DONNA REED, most renowned for her popular roles in It's a Wonderful Life and From Here to Eternity.
This is the story of one man's journey in search of his estranged father and one woman's attempt to discover the truth behind the disappearance of her husband, both of whom were possibly the victims of an Apache massacre. But the Arizona desert is a harsh, merciless and unforgiving landscape filled with deadly secrets and few survivors.
